We all know that, right?
I mean, a summer lay-off would have been nicer. Some of you will remember "The Summer of Ken" from 6 years ago. ("The Fall of Ken" doesn't quite have the same ring to it.)
So as I blog in the next few months, keep in mind that I am a planner and a do-er-in-advance-r.
The Christmas chocolate is already ordered, and our Christmas cards are sitting under my telephone desk. We already booked and pre-paid a condo at our favourite ski hill over Christmas.
What else? I bought myself a new skirt/shirt/sweater outfit at the end of August with no returns on sale items that is very wintery and hasn't seen the light of day yet. Yay! New clothes for me when the snow flies, without spending money in the face of our new budgetary reality!
(And something else has been pre-paid, but I can't mention that one yet.)
So austerity measures have been implemented, but won't be painful for quite some time.
